Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to the NGLs that are separated from the flare stream? Will I have to dispose of them?
Unlike other companies, the Proteum Energy process utilizes the entire flare stream, including the NGLs, to produce a consistent BTU fuel stream. NGLs are reformed into a methane stream resulting in no waste and more available fuel for the site. No additional handling of NGLs is required when utilizing the FTF system.
What site services are required for the Flare-to-Fuel system?
The flare stream, a source of water, and room for our skid-based system. Electrical service can be supplied by a black start generator during the startup phase of operation, or by existing power, if available.
What levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can the Flare-to-Fuel system tolerate?
Up to 20ppm of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is permissible. If more than 20ppm is present, then an additional sulfur knockout will be required. Proteum Energy can specify an appropriate system.
How much fuel can the FTF300 produce?
The FTF300 can supply ~2,000,000 standard cubic feet / day (SCFD) of quality, consistent BTU fuel. If your needs are greater, talk to us, we can design a solution that will fit your needs.
How much space is required by the Fuel-to-Flare system?
Every site is different. A typical site will need a clear space of 100’ x 100’. The Proteum Energy FTF300K system is skid-based, so a one- size–fits-all layout is not required. The system will need space, but the actual geometry will be determined by your site. Contact us for a site evaluation.
How much water is required for operation?
½ gallon a minute with a minimum of 2500 gallon reservoir on site.
